    Hi all,

    I just did as root:

    Code:
    cd /usr/ports/www/firefox
    make install clean


    and got this:

    Code:
    ......

    It's possible to install it by pkg_add -r, but this way I somehow only can get a Firefox 9. So I did pkg_delete on it and tried to install from ports. With error mentioned above.

    My system:

    Code:
    9.0-RELEASE FreeBSD 9.0-RELEASE #0: Tue Jan  3 07:46:30 UTC 2012     root@farrell.cse.buffalo.edu:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  amd64
    


    Thanks!

    Did you turn on any options?

    Run # make rmconfig clean and try again.

    I have had the same problem for about 1 month now. I have tried turning off ccache, running without OPTIMIZED_CFLAGS and setting GCCVER 4.2 instead of my regular gcc46; no luck. I also use Seamonkey - that does not build either. Both mozilla port builds break consistently.

    Remove any CFLAGS and related variables from /etc/make.conf.

    I too am having a problem with installing firefox 10. Installation halts when installing "gobject-introspection" and "cairo"; neither are installed. I would assume that any dependencies would be automatically installed as seems to be the usual procedure.

    I just use the Dutchman's "portupdater" after manually updating a number of ports which would not update and were listed as dependencies (gobject-introspection, png, firefox, php5-gd); portupdater indicated the dead dependencies and I removed them. However, some, like png and php-gd should have remained as they should have been dependencies for php5 and phpMyAdmin would not update. I tried deinstalling and reinstalling to no avail.

    And, phpMyAdmin (or is it phpmyadmin - I really think it would be consistent to decide whether to use the capitalization or not; this is rather confusing when searching and undermines the clarity and conciseness of FreeBSD in general) was installed earlier; it would not update until I deinstalled and reinstalled. And guess what: it is not installed and I just reinstalled it.

    Am I due for the nuthouse or what is going on? Seamonkey is being stubborn - can't install it. Png won't install. I didn't find anything in UPDATING or in searching.

    I have a nice little machine: Asus Maximus IV with i7-2600K at 4.7ghz, so compiling the ports is really, really quick (the motherboard was just replaced for a defective Marvell driver, unrelated to current problem) but the problems were there before replacement and have not abated.

    What can I look for to post in debugging this problem?
